Coffee and Cigarettes: Seahawks links for Saturday


Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Aloha! Appreciative of the feedback I got from you guys yesterday, and will continue to work towards making this the best daily post it can be. Heading into the draft if there are any specific players or schemes you'd like to be discussed, just let me know. There are a lot of players to scout and having a discussion about how they would or would not fit with the Seahawks is both fun (for a football nerd like me) and an opportunity to expand the content on this post. With my vast experience of one day on the job, I can tell you that Danny does an immense amount of work for the site, so with me only having this daily post to look after, I have more energy to spend. Please let me know your thoughts about content in the comments. This site is for you, help us help you. Hope everyone has a great day!

And the links!
